Web site works fine using files under local machine but when changed to UNC path, you get directed to login in page and no images or CSS is viewed.

if you login then css and images work

<authorization>
                <allow users ="?" />
            </authorization>

Grant the app pool name access to the unc folder or allow anonymous read access

I don't believe it to be a permissions error as once user login via forms all photos, css show.

the folder has IUSR, SYSTEM, ADMINISTRATOR, WEB08$ (THIS IS THE WEB HOST)

i have tried EVERYONE, NETWORK SERVICE.

IIS_USER is not available as iix is not installed on file server.

Then don't listen to the above recommendation to allow ANONYMOUS read access.

Change  <allow users ="?" /> to  <allow users ="*" />
